What are the Consequences of Domestic Violence
When a partner accuses you of domestic violence, you face many serious legal and personal challenges.
- You could find yourself subject to an emergency civil protection order. A domestic violence restraining order can cause significant upheaval to your life.
- Credible accusations of domestic violence in family court can mean you need to move out of a shared home.
- Child custody decisions can be impacted by domestic violence charges.
The possibility of criminal charges is also very real in cases where domestic violence is alleged. You could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony offense depending upon the circumstances. Important factors in determining possible penalties include whether you have a past record, if a weapon was used, and if a serious injury occurred or could have resulted.
Prosecutors can pursue criminal charges even without the cooperation of the alleged victim, so you need to react aggressively when accused.
